Two mononuclear Re(v) complexes were synthesized using two different O, N, N coordinating Schiff base ligands. The X-ray structure and catalytic properties of the complexes are investigated and the electronic structure and absorption spectra were also calculated.


Good work, the basis set choice can be better


The article presents the synthesis and characterization of two mononuclear Re(V) complexes. DFT and TD-DFT methods were employed for exploring the electronic structure and absorption spectra. Furthermore, the complexes were also tested for catalytic activity in...
